Allegheny County Controller Chelsa Wagner and her husband, Khari Mosley, face felony and misdemeanor charges, respectively, stemming from a March 6 incident at a Detroit hotel.

Allegheny County Controller Chelsa Wagner and her husband plan to turn themselves in to Detroit authorities on Monday morning, prosecutors said Friday.

Wagner and her husband, Khari Mosley, will be arraigned via video conference from the Detroit Detention Center, Wayne County Assistant Prosecutor Maria Miller said. The live video feed will be broadcast before a magistrate at the 36th District Court in Detroit.

Detroit attorney Charles Longstreet is representing the defendants, Miller said. Longstreet could not be reached for comment.

The couple was charged Wednesday in connection with an incident involving police at a Detroit hotel earlier this month.

Wagner, 41, of Pittsburgh’s Point Breeze neighborhood, faces two felony counts of resisting and obstructing the police and a misdemeanor count of disorderly conduct.

Mosley, 42, was charged with two misdemeanor counts of disorderly conduct and disturbing the peace.

The charges stem from a March 6 incident at the Westin Book Cadillac Hotel. Wagner and Mosley were staying at the hotel while visiting the city on a belated Valentine’s Day trip.

Police say they detained Mosley after he caused a disturbance and arrested Wagner after she assaulted a police officer.

Wagner has told the Tribune-Review that police mischaracterized the incident and she described officers as the aggressors.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
